Collision Avoidance of AMRs
Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) are the future of cost-efficient manufacturing and distribution. Our Robotics Patents show how self-managing machines can cooperate with each other through on-the-fly localization and identification, even in a crowded or chaotic industrial environment. These Patents therefore offer significant value to major manufacturers (including automotive) – as well as to companies with large-scale packaging and shipping requirements.

Cooperation Among Mobile Robots Using 5G/6G Communications - September 12, 2023
Fixed and mobile robots require specialized communication to identify themselves and localize other robots in real-time. Disclosed are systems and methods enabling a very wide range of robotic systems to communicate specifically with each other, for problem avoidance and productivity enhancement.
Result: RAPID COORDINATION OF AUTONOMOUS ROBOTS.
Autonomous Navigation and Collaboration of Mobile Robots in 5G/6G - January 17, 2023
Robots are expected to be the basis for the 21st-century economy in developed countries, but an unsolved problem remains how to manage autonomous mobile devices and avoid collisions. Here we present methods for mobile robots to identify and localize each other, and collaborate in solving production problems.
Result: COLLISIONS AVOIDED, WORKFLOW ACCELERATED.
Collision Avoidance of Mobile Robots - October 4, 2022
In a busy automated factory, managing a multitude of single-task mobile devices in motion is an unsolved problem. Here we show how the mobile devices can automatically communicate, localize each other, and coordinate to avoid problems such as collisions and interference.
Result: FASTER, SMOOTHER FACTORY OPERATIONS.
Identification and Localization of Mobile Robots - October 27, 2020
Mobile robots in a busy industrial site must coordinate their actions to avoid interfering with each other. This Patent shows how each robot can use coded light pulses and simultaneous wireless messages to identify themselves. The robots can then communicate directly while in motion, for better coordination and management.
Result: IMPROVED PRODUCTION EFFICIENCY.

Robot Cooperation by Simultaneous Infrared and 5G/6G Wireless Signals - June 28, 2023
Cooperation between robots, or between humans and robots, requires that each entity know the location of each other cooperating entity. Disclosed is a method for robots to localize and identify each other using simultaneous IR and wireless signals.
Result: SAFE COOPERATION BETWEEN ROBOTS AND HUMANS.
